    Depending on your taste, either much hilarity or a tedious barrage of tasteless, juvenile pranking ensues. Trust your instincts.

    At a certain point, Bean goes beyond awful to surreally awful, like the rug Burt Reynolds sports in a cameo. The last-ditch plunge into pathos does nothing to redeem the feeling. Let's hope no sequel is in the offing. The only thing worse than Bean would be a hill of Beans. [07Nov1997 Pg08.D]

    "Bean" is a monotonous movie that pertain a few laughs to laugh; no more, no less.

    This is a great movie. Rowan Atkinson is great once again. Tom McGowan is great too! It's one of the best British movies ever made. I loved it,and my mom did too. Don't miss it! Full Review »

    This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen - maybe even the funniest. A perfect film.
    I think this film is better than Bean's second
    film (Mr. Bean's Vacation). Full Review »
